I was extremely happy when I got the news: Anatman Pictures will shoot Essien. Yes, Michael Essien! As a football fan since I was a boy (i’m still a boy, anyway) and Chelsea FC is one of my favorite football clubs, the news is oasis in a desert!
For a huge name like Essien, I would totally understand if he was arrogant and acted like a rockstar. But he doesn’t. He’s very humble and down to earth.
The production took place in Bandung, the Paris van Java. The production process took a day to wrap. We closed the stadium only for us! It was a super fun production! The only thing I regret about the production is that I forgot to ask for his autograph! Sigh!
Let’s make another video, Essien!
Men in black.
“It’s a diving, ref!”
Essien, the busker.
“After this scene, you do that scene, bla bla bla …”
Before the show.
